I think the point is that everyone who was a subscriber at any time when
the complainant posted to the list may have archived copies of that
person's "personal" information and will thus have to receive a copy of
the complaint (at least all those in jurisdictions covered by privacy
laws like this).
Though it's probably impossible to know the exact set of subscribers who
may have received copies of the complainant's posts, the most effective
way to reach everyone is to just post the complaint verbatim to the list
as we all may have archives that are potentially publically accessible.
